romney was telling all these lies, why on earth was barack obama not correcting them during the debate in front of over 60 million americans? >> and that's what i would ask, i would love to honestly hear newt gingrich's response to this, because as he said in his previous debates, when he backed down a bit, you just cannot debate somebody who is dishonest. you just can't. this is again, quoting newt gingrich. the people say i'm a good debater. i can't debate somebody who won't tell the truth. >> what i'm asking you, why did the president not correct any of these apparent lies? it's the biggest audience of the year. it's a huge debate. it's potentially a game changing moment in the election. you say mitt romney lied 25 times. barack obama didn't point that out to the american public once. >> yeah. i think he should have corrected some of them. i'm not here as a surrogate for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when you are in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put
